Make Some Space For Mosser Glass

We are so proud to be one of very few Canadian stockists to carry Mosser Glass. Not only to we love the product, but we love the story behind this long-standing family-owned and operated business.

Mosser glassware originated more than 50 years ago with Orie Mosser and the Cambridge Glass Company in Ohio. After the company’s closure in 1954, Orie’s son Tom continued and refined the trade over the next few years. Beginning with the basics of quality glass manufacturing, Tom was able to establish Mosser Glass in 1971.

Rooted in fine family tradition, Mosser Glass is a company that values traditional approaches that are moulded (no pun intended) for a contemporary context using primarily raw materials and a six step manufacturing process. Proudly displaying its legacy, glassware produced by the Mosser company demonstrates detailed craftsmanship combined with intricate design. The pieces are impressive yet practical.

Mosser encompasses a wide selection of beautifully handcrafted glassware pieces (see some of what we have in stock below) that blend classic designs with modern functionality. The timeless nature of these creations is sure to withstand years of use and love. Add a feeling of nostalgia, warmth, and elegance to your home with these new products now in store at M&L.

 

You really can't go wrong with these kitchen staples that provide a refined yet vintage look. Far from basic, this pitcher features a custom moulded rim and cut glass design that extends from the surface to the base.
